The truth is, telegraph, I didn't know there was this response to my original post. I haven't posted much to the boards here (if you've noticed), and just now saw the warm welcome.

I wrote the original post so that I could start a one-on-one email with a retired Fool with an interesting tale, tips, or insight. End of story. I did get a few responses, and was about to start writing when I saw this thread.

I posted on two other boards (did not plaster -- come on, please!) because, after posting on this board, the first response I got (if you scroll up) was a suggestion that I post my question on other boards!

Finally, I'm not anywhere near a millionaire myself, and I think the purpose of finding millionaires to profile is about inspiration to others to try to hit that mark and beyond, not the nitty-gritty of whether it means "making it big." Not a cheap story -- just a personal one.

Sorry if I've rubbed you the wrong way by disappearing after my initial post and thus seeming like a twit (I can be one, but in this case, it's really not the case).

Actually, the lady who started this thread appears to have plastered her plea for 'stories' across all the retirement boards, wanting an eamil response..

Probably so she could throw together some stories like: " I put $1000 into Fool recommended stocks and retired 10 years later with 10 million dollars - all thanks to the advice from the Fools and XX stock..."

She hasn't been back to comment on any story on the multiple boards she put this....

Sad commentary...

Just a passer by out for a cheap story for the Fool without understanding any of the issues or calculations or other factors....

dumb twit!
